Another example of log cabin lunacy!

 Well, here is how it goes.  I had my blue fabrics pulled out to make my small log cabin/embroidery piece in my last post, and I thought...what if I made those log cabin blocks bigger?  So I ended up slicing ALL my dark blue fabrics up into 1.5 inch side strips and I was off to the races.  I have not ONE dark blue fabric left, LOL!
I sewed an hour each night...I mean the middle of the night!  LOL!  I go to bed at the usual time, but always end up waking up at about 3 AM and sewing...it is quiet thing to do and so I get a lot done then.  I ended up with 89 blocks, and they are 8 inch, 7.5 inch finished. 

In the days when I am off, I run around and clean house and intermittently make nursing caps. I am getting faster at that! 

Dotti was kind enough to share this pattern too.  I have some cut out with this pattern as well. Big thanks for the Bolt Quilt Shop, and to Dotti, too!

Today, I am mowing the lawn and baking a little after that. Seven layer bars!  I have been making my own bread, but I cannot find yeast locally...I will look on Amazon.



Have a great day, all!!!

I was playing with my Log Cabin blocks recently too!
I would be out of dark blue fabric after about five blocks---not a color I buy much :)

Stay cool...

Oh Wow!! I just love your log cabin quilt. Blue is my favorite color --I really am in love with the layout also. Good job---although it sounds like you could use some sleep. LOL!! Take care of yourself. Maxine Reisenleiter qbym@att.net

The quilt is lovely and many of us are night owls for our sewing. If you need more scraps, by all means give a shout out cause I will NEVER run out!! The baking sounds so fun. I am an art therapist at an assisted living facility and my days off are for sewing and recharging. IT's the only thing keeping me sane in these stressful times. However, I do think about sourdough bread baking. Maybe one day....

Kudos for making your own bread,Julie. I've been using the bread machine. Your log cabin piece is stunning! Good luck with the chores.

So much work, but these are looking wonderful! Everyone in my family would be alarmed if I was up at that time using the sewing machine.:) Good that it works so well for you!

Your little log cabin blocks is beautiful! I don't know how you can get up at 3 AM to quilt! I can stay up as long as anyone, but once in bed, I'm there until morning. Maybe I should set an alarm at 3 and try it? ---"Love"
